Joey Doiron Scores Popular Victory in Southern Maine Motors 150 at Beech Ridge for PASS North

By Dick Thierren

Joey Doiron has not been setting the world on fire in the 2014 PASS North Super Late Model Series, but his luck may have just peaked at the right time as he picked up a big win in the Southern Maine Motors Firecracker 150 at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway in Scarborough, Maine this past Saturday night. Doiron’s victory comes just two weeks before the biggest Super Late Model event in the Northeast, that being the 41st Annual Oxford 250 on July 20th.

Joey Polewarzyk started on the point for the main event, and set a blistering early pace as he was starting to lap cars 30 laps into the race. Glen Luce held onto second, while Austin Theriault, Doiron and Scott Mulkern settled in for a long run of green flag laps. The first caution waved on lap 56 for a minor spin in turn three. The restart saw Mulkern get the jump with Doiron glued to his back bumper. On lap 90 Mulkern slipped up in turn three allowing Doiron to slip underneath for the lead. Mulkern recovered in time to hold off a fast charging Mike Rowe, and Theriault.

Three quick cautions for spins slowed the pace from lap 122 through lap 129, but it did nothing to slow the pace for Doiron as he continued to pull away from the pack on each restart. Doiron cruised to his first victory of the season as he finished ahead of Theriault, Glen Luce, Mike Rowe and Mulkern. Sixth through tenth places went to Cassius Clark, Travis Benjamin, Trevor Sanborn, Johnny Clark and Brent Dragon. Qualifying checkers flew for Polewarzyk, Luce and Dave Farrington Jr.

Mitch Miller raced by leader Travis Buzzell on a lap 34 restart and cruised to victory in the PASS Modified 40 lap feature. Scott McDaniel raced home third ahead of Scott Alexander and Billy Dixon. Andy Saunders and Alexander picked up heat victories.

The next event on the calendar is the prestigious 41st Annual Oxford 250 weekend set to go green July 18th – 20th.
